Our Story

Women in Comics Collective International, (WinC for short, pronounced  "wink"), is an artistic and informative initiative that began in May 2012.

WinC serves to highlight the merit and craftwork of marginalized voices, especially that of women and Queer folx of color, who work in various industries, such as comics, publishing, gaming, media, education, and multimedia. We host educational and professional events across the country.
